SECONDARY school pupils from Stirling took part in the first round of a golf league this month.

The students came from five local schools for Active Stirling’s Secondary Schools Golf League, which took place at Callander Golf Club on Wednesday, October 3.

They were split into pairs on what was an unfavourable day with rain showers.

Despite the weather, some excellent golf was played with one pupil from Balfron High on a handicap of zero.

Paul O’Shea, Active Schools co-ordinator, said: “It was a really enjoyable day at Callander Golf Club and it was great to see so many pupils taking part in the first league meeting of the Stirling Schools Golf League.

“It's always encouraging to see good participation in a sport that isn't seen as a traditional or regular school sport.

“Well done to everyone who took part! And thanks to Callander Golf Club for their support on the day.”

Following the matches, Dunblane High B and McLaren High are leading with three points each, while Balfron, Stirling and Wallace schools are hot on their heels with two points each. Dunblane High A will be looking to make amends next time around, sitting at the bottom with no points.

The next round is scheduled for Wednesday, November 7.
